About Mary

Multitalented retired teacher misses working with students. I taught middle school for over 20 years. Having been certified as a K-8 any subject teacher, I was given many opportunities in many different subjects (art, music, social studies, and most often language arts - reading, writing, spelling, grammar, etc.). I am a proficient guitar player, and singer, with a special endorsement as a music educator with my teacher's certificate.

I love working with children. I am inspired by their resilience, their creativity, and their uniqueness. I believe in developing a helping relationship before I would be able to really "help" students succeed.
